  1. a final note to this post... In setting up like this, this will allow for easy implementation of new services on the fly.
    which means .. more services to you the community. 


  2. Hello folks,
    This is going to be a wall of words so be warned!

    By now you probably have noticed the new donation goal.
    and you are now asking WTF why do we need a new server.

    The simple answer is its cheaper in the long run.
    However there is more benefits to the new server.
    Yes I said Server not servers.
    This is where things get cheaper going down to 1 server.

    Our current set up is we have 2 servers each costing $114.00 and a mid point load balancing bridge which costs $57.00 
    This is the Actual cost every month. I dont bring up the $57 because that was my choice of linking the servers and syncing them real time.

    But with time Tech evolves.
    Okay so what that mean? and how does this help us?
    Instead of 2 servers on each side of the world we will be running as a cluster server.

    What the hell you talking about and what is a cluster server?

    Tradition servers are all housed in one box

    Cluster servers are basically micro powerhouses that are all linked to nodes where I can select a node in say Australia for one of the web servers.
    and game servers. This node takes its own resources and uses it as a complete server.. minus the storage 
    However the magic is.. its not a complete server. It is just a piece of the server. it is a CPU Ram and multi High-speed communication ports 
    Next it would connect to a box just for Large storage and hit the main cloud server.
    Now we would create a copy of the Australia node but this time Located in USA
    The same process would happen. it would connect to the Large storage and main cloud server.
    Now we have the same exact server in 2 locations with perfect Lat and also Fall over capabilities.
    We would create a slave node for both locations so if one fails or needs a little more get up and go it would ramp up.

    We would also place a node setup in optimum location in UK.

    and when we see other countries using our services we would expand to those areas.

    However here is the other thing.
    With this set up we can designate a new node to a spacific task IE Running Mail servers.
    Or running Linux for our git services.
    Or even Our patching service
    Or and MySQL servers.

    And these expansions do not cost extra as we are billed for storage and CPU Load vs a full bare metal server.

    What does that mean.

    Okay so ... we would be rolled into a package which in essence would have the available CPU power of 4 of the servers we have.
    Plus 10 TB Storage on a SSD Array. for roughly $50/75 less than the 2 servers in tandom so.

    This is where we would actually save money
    Now there IS a catch!
    There is a setup cost and this is why the goal is so high.
    I can cover part of it but I am going to need help with the rest of it.


    Just the performance boost alone would pay for itself.

    Okay so I have taken enough of your time
    and I am not holding my breath but I am holding hope.
    Thank you all for your time and I hope you all are safe and not doing stupid shit like going to malls,parks,beaches.

    Take time to care for yourself and others.
    Don't forget to tell the ones you love that you love them it might be your last chance,
    Lor

    ps have questions feel free to has here. I will leave thread unlocked for that purpose.

    Note the thread Will lock at 1am on the date of expire of goal.
     


  3. It is with great sadness I need to make this announcement.
    Not just because the channel is going on standby for now but the fact that one of the family is in serious trouble with his health.
    So as of sunday we will be killing the stream as @Catacrunch is not able to keep it updated and fresh.

    This being said I will get with him and see if I can use his assets and Stream the channel on my channel during the weekends to keep the music alive.
    I think weekend streams would be good as people are mostly around during the weekend. 
    So if he is good with it I will start stream say 1pm est friday for our fam across the pond and close the stream around 00:00 Monday morning.

    This all depends on if it is okay with Mr Catacrunch 

    Streaming it on the weekends only will delay materials getting old fast.

    I will update this as soon as get word from Mr @Catacrunch
     He might reply who knows if he is up to it. 

    With that said I will try to get set up to stream our new show on the radio fridays.
    Moz-B will be doing a 4 hour segment on fridays 
    My delay on that will be the stream overlay for the show.
    I would like to set something up like HCF channel but my brain draws a blank when it comes to the creative juices.
    And with the master down and out... there will be no overlay any time soon.


  4. In preparations for 2020 http://pds-uc.com and all pages connected to that domain will be offline for the majority of the day!
    It will be a mirror of http://ultracorestudios.com when completed [I Think I haven't decided yet]

    There is no need to report outages we know it is happening.
    This is intentional as we are redesigning the backend and also the main site.
    When completed we hope to have a full portal to cover all services including the 
    Dlive channels related to our community.

    Thank you for your patience in this matter.

    Your admin,
    Lorac

  6. Showcase is one of our new Segments being added to the station

    What is showcase?

    Showcase is a show where we make the show completely about one of the Dj's who are part of our community/family.

    The Slots are Not set in stone yet because we do not have much for some of the Djs yet.

    But if you go to the scheduled shows tab on
    http://radio.ultracorestudios.com it will provide you upto 24 hours notice.

    It is only right to start showcase with the person who made this all possible D-Crypter.

    This show will air on Weds 12/18/2019 @ 8am -5GMT

    How long is this show?
    This show is 7 hours 37 minutes

    It will be like a Sunday Takedown for a single Dj

    Weds 4:00pm -5GMT
    Showcase: Dj Skyline will air
    Run time 5h 55m

    Thursday 2:30pm -5GMT
    Showcase Dj Smurf will air 
    Run time 5h 16m

    This is a test run for the week and we will be adjusting the times for a more fluid schedule 

    Eventually I hope to get with the Djs and do an Interview with them but this is down the road as I do not know if they will be game.


  7. Good Evening Folks,
    As you might have noticed the forums are being changed around a bit.
    This is because we are rolling everything we have our fingers in into one forum.
    Over the next week or so you will notice much will change including ranks, permissions, staffing listings.
    During this time you will also notice new features.

    Current new addition is the listing of chat rooms on the side.
    you can click on any of the rooms and enter a full size chat.

    We are not stopping there so keep your eyes open for changes and updates here. have a good night

    4. The launcher will become available to all.
